O’s Notes: Mark’s range and dynamics on tenor sax set him out from the crowd. The rhythm section is tight and provides a creative landscape for his spontaneous, energetic melodies. But Colby is not alone as pianist Vince Maggio, bassist Eric Hochberg and drummer Bob Rummage each display their own prowess taking turns holding the lead. Rob Parton’s trumpet blends nicely on “Riley’s Thang” and the bluesy “Bloom’s Room”, two of three Colby originals on this recording.
